The Mobility Database is hosted and supported by MobilityData, a non-profit organization that improves and extends mobility data formats, including GTFS, GTFS Realtime and GBFS. MobilityData is currently working on the Mobility Database because of the need for a sustainable, community-supported hub for international mobility datasets.
After consulting the mobility community on their data sharing needs, we're developing the mobility catalogs repository to start addressing the most critical needs of stakeholders relying on TransitFeeds, and ensure the community has a place to collaborate on improving the data.
In the long term, we'll scale the catalogs to include these three products:
The Mobility Database
The Mobility Archives
The User Interface
MobilityData began in 2015 as a Rocky Mountain Institute project and became a Canadian non-profit in 2019 with the mission to improve traveler information. Building on the strength of nearly 20 employees, MobilityData brings together and supports mobility stakeholders such as transport agencies, software vendors, mobility apps, and cities to standardize and expand data formats for public transport (GTFS) and shared mobility (GBFS).
